The Nokia 808 PureView camera technology has taken five years to develop and is set to change the way we view smartphone camera technology forever, But what exactly is it and how does it work? Read on and find out how the Nokia 808 PureView camera technology works.
The Nokia 808 PureView is a 4-inch smartphone running the Nokia Belle operating system that comes with a Feature Pack 1 update, so you’ll find even more tweaks and system smoothing features than ever before.

However, what has to be the biggest selling point of the Nokia 808 PureView is quite simply the 41-megapixel camera that comes with an amazing new technology called PreView. Now, we’re not camera experts here at My Nokia Tweet, we’re just great fans of design and innovation so we’re not even going to try and get into the nitty gritty of what PureView is.
Thankfully Nokia has come to the rescue with this handy Nokia PureView technology PDF that is free to download and gives you all the salient facts. If you’re looking for a quick and easy breakdown, then PureView is defined as:
The Nokia PureView imaging technology is the combination of a large, super high resolution 41-megapixel with high performance Carl Zeiss optics. The large sensor enables pixel oversampling, which means the combination of many pixels into one perfect pixel.
Pixel oversampling uses multiple pixels to create a single (super) pixel, so you get to keep virtually all the detail by shedding away visual noise from the image. The speckled, grainy look you tend to get in low-lighting conditions is greatly reduced. And in good light, visual noise is virtually non-existent. The level of pixel oversampling is highest when you’re not using the zoom. It gradually decreases until you hit maximum zoom, where there is no oversampling.
Even if you’re simply curious as to how Nokia tech-heads managed to make the huge leap in terms of camera technology then it’s well worth having a read, you can be sure the camera boffins out there already have!
